Intended learning outcomes

The course aims at providing knowledge of methods and principles for building mathematical models for dynamic systems. Model construction from physical principles as well as from measurement data is covered. Properties of models are also studied by means of simulation. After completed course the student should be able to:

  • define, describe and apply basic concepts related to modelling, identification and simulation.
  • simplify a given model using static relations, substitution of variables using constants, neglection of small effects and aggregation of states.
  • using conservation laws and constitutive relationships and other physical relations to model mechanical (in one dimension), electrical and flow systems, and combinations of these, in DAE form and (if possible) in state space representation.
  • contruct bond graphs for the type of systems mentioned above, simplify and analyze the bond graph according to causality conflicts, and from a given bond graph without conflicts make a state space representation.
  • calculate the index of a given DAE.
  • model and simulate mechanical (in one dimension) and electrical systems using the computer tools Simulink and 20Sim.
  • identify a model of a real system by choosing experiment setup, post processing of data, model structure and validation.
  • calculate asymptotic bias and variance properties of a given linear identification problem.
  • decide if a give simulation method is implicit or explicit and how many steps it consists of, and calculation of the local and global error and stability area for simple simulation methods.
  • Oral and written communication Technical English

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
